Kirsty d’Arc is enjoying life, until someone she trusts hijacks her soul in this first installment of The Reluctant Reaper series. To escape Hell’s inferno and gain revenge, Kirsty must partner with the very Reaper who scythed her—hunky dead poet Dante Alighieri. 

Life for Kirsty d’Arc might not be perfect, but it’s far from hellish. She likes her job, has a great BFF and truly admires Conrad, her boss. But when she dives in front of a lunatic’s blade to save him from certain death, she finds out Conrad isn’t so admirable after all. In fact, he’s traded her soul to the Devil!

While her body lies comatose on the Mortal Coil, Kirsty’s spirit is dragged straight to Hell…which is not quite the fire-and-brimstone abyss she’d expected. In fact, the place is quirky, wacky, and not without charm. Desperate to reunite body and soul before her time runs out, she seeks out allies, earning the friendship of a powerful drag demon, a psychic server and most importantly, Hell’s civil servant. But what of her growing attraction to Dante, the sexy Reaper with a flair for romantic language—can she forgive him for scything her soul?

Stuck in the netherworld, Kirsty vows she’ll do everything on her postmortem bucket-list, starting with getting her life back and ensuring that Conrad has Hell to pay!

Will THE RELUCTANT REAPER become your guilty pleasure?

An encouraging and well-balanced review.

This novella is a campy romp through Hell.  It is not however the fire and brimstone realm of woe and torture bemoaned by clergy the world over. The Hell we have here is one made up of contracts, waiting lines, cross-dressing ferrymen, and reapers to-die-for.
The best things about this book are:
1.  Characters
2.  The Setting
3.  The Campiness

The worst things about this book are… (Read the rest here.)

 

 

COVER REVEAL, THE SEQUEL: SCYTHE DOES MATTER

More stripper music… ta dum dum da! Here’s the cover to book 2 of The Reluctant Reaper series… SCYTHE DOES MATTER!

Scythe Does Matter Cover Final~SmallerComing to an online retailer near you July 17, 2013!

BLURB: Kirsty’s afterlife gets even more Hellish in this second installment of The Reluctant Reaper series when her soul-stealing ex-boss targets her beloved aunt. Her only chance to stop him? Becoming a Reaper herself. Fortunately, her hunky new boyfriend, Italian-poet-turned-Reaper Dante Alighieri, is there to help.Still trapped in the bureaucratic inferno known as Hell, Kirsty d’Arc redoubles her efforts to escape back to the Mortal Coil when she learns Conrad is after the soul of her beloved aunt. To save Aunt Carey, Kirsty must enroll at the Reaper Academy and earn a scythe of her own. Studying topics like Exor-scything 101, Riding the Death Cycle, and Reincarnation for Dummies is strange. But then, so are her classmates: a fallen angel, the Death Valley girls, and Kali—the ancient god of death, destruction, and those little earring backs that always go missing.

Now time is running out thanks to a temporal crisis she may have accidentally created. Can she graduate, rescue her aunt, take down Conrad, and save Hell and every other dimension—before the clock stops ticking?

As the saying goes in Hell, “Be careful what you wish for; it just might get you!”

 

THE RELUCTANT REAPER: A mini-review!

The Reluctant Reaper by Gina X. Grant was a really fun read! There are 80s and 90s references galore, and the wordplay made me snort so often I have too many highlights to share in my review that will be posted tomorrow.

If you want lots of good laughs and a sexy reaper, you should definitely pick this up as soon as it comes out!

Dan Brown and I are like this!

Dante in HellDid you see the announcement yesterday? Dan Brown’s next novel is coming out in May and it’s about Dante’s Inferno. 

My Reluctant Reaper series is set and Hell and features Dante, the poet himself, as the love interest of my resourceful heroine, Kirsty d’Arc. The 700-year age difference sometimes causes friction.

In fact, I’ve used all sorts of historical, mythological and original characters in my bizarro version of Hell.

The series debuts in June. (And July. And August. Available for pre-order now.)

This can only work in my favor, right? At least everyone will know who Dante Alighieri is.

By Jason Boog on January 15, 2013, from Galleycat

Megabestselling author Dan Brown will return with a new novel on May 14th. Inferno will revolve around Dante Alighieri‘s epic poem, InfernoYou can download a free illustrated eBook copy of Inferno.

Like The Lost Symbol and The Da Vinci Code, the book will feature the adventures of Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.

Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group will print four million copies initially.

Brown had this statement in the release: “Although I studied Dante’s Inferno as a student, it wasn’t until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante’s work on the modern world … With this new novel, I am excited to take readers on a journey deep into this mysterious realm…a landscape of codes, symbols, and more than a few secret passageways.”
